Jake Cronenworth drives in four as Padres crush Diamondbacks

padres

Jake Cronenworth drove in four runs Saturday night and Ha-Seong Kim hit a three-run homer as the San Diego Padres pummeled the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks 13-1.

San Diego, which scored in double figures for the second straight game, tallied 14 hits and scored four runs in the second, fourth and fifth innings. David Peralta went 3-for-3 and reached base five times, while Fernando Tatis Jr. doubled to extend his hitting streak to 14 games, tying his career high.

Matt Waldron (4-5), who retired the first 12 batters he faced, lasted six innings, giving up one run on three hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

Ryne Nelson (3-5) allowed six hits and six runs (five earned) in 3 1/3 innings. He walked four and struck out one. With their bullpen taxed by a recent run of abbreviated starts, the Diamondbacks used outfielder Pavin Smith to pitch the eighth inning. He walked one and gave up no runs and no hits.

The Padres got the only runs they needed in the second inning. Arizona first baseman Christian Walker committed a throwing error on Jackson Merrill’s potential double-play ball, scoring Donovan Solano to give San Diego a 1-0 lead.

Kim made it 4-0 moments later, lacing a fastball into the seats in left-center for his ninth homer of the year and second in as many games.

San Diego blew it open in the fourth with another four-run outburst. After Tatis doubled and Jurickson Profar walked with one out to knock Nelson out, Cronenworth greeted reliever Logan Allen with a towering three-run homer to center. Merrill doubled home Peralta to give the Padres an 8-0 advantage.

The Diamondbacks got on the board in the fifth via Eugenio Suarez’s RBI single to left but the Padres put together four more runs in their half of the inning. Cronenworth singled in a run, Solano hit a sacrifice fly and Peralta doubled home two more runs to make it 12-1.

Kyle Higashioka finished the scoring in the sixth with a solo homer, his fourth of the year.
